The Last Minute Trail Race is over!

This was a " test event", and we learned a lot!

Falkland Trail Runners had produced some fantastic events but there had been no races in 2016. With a new prganising team in place, we needed to run an event to test our systems. But it had to be low key - we would make mistakes. This race was all about making those mistakes in a safe environment, where nobody would be hurt and no reputations would be harmed.

And that's how it turned out. The arrangements were basically fine, but we had some problems with the signage and some less critical aspects of the organisation. We made those mistakes, we learned from them, and were now in a position to have some real fun with real events!

The event covered approx. 8km / 5 miles in two laps of mixed terrain – predominantly forest trails - within the beautiful surroundings of Falkland Estate. As you would expect of a Pyscho Squirrel race, it included all of the usual 'attractions' and plenty scope for wet feet!

Here’s what it was like:

 
  1. ONLY OPEN TO FTR MEMBERS (full or casual)
  2. silly hilly bits
  3. soggy boggy bits
  4. round abouty bits
  5. squirrelly birly bits
  6. NEW trails, never before used in any FTR races
  7. A MEDAL FOR EVERY FNISHER
  8. Entries cost just £5!
  9. LIMITED TO 50 PLACES

ALL THAT FOR JUST £8 FOR ALL FTR MEMBERS.
